Golden color with a little white head. Aroma was a bit strange ranging from wet grass/straw to some hints of something sweet. Good taste but, nothing real special.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. OK session beer- body is pretty light, a touch watery. Caramel color, no head. Flavor is bread, crackers. No hops or bitterness. A bit disappointed by this one...pretty bland, usually the TJ brews are pretty good- this one is sub-par.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Trader Joe’s. Pours a darker amber with thin white head. Aroma is light, with sweet malt with a hint of caramel. Thin and watery with strong yet hidden carbonation. Flavor is equally light in character with sweetness throughout, some malt and caramel, a hint of citrus and grapefruit bitterness, and a short flat finish that is lightly bitter. It hints at roastiness at times but never fully comes through. Something is "off" in the nose but I can’t define it. Not too bad.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear, dark amber with a bit of white head. Aroma of caramel malt, but a little bitter. Flavor is okay, but too bitter and astringent a finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Nice clear amber pour with a slightly yellow head. Nice sweet malty aroma. thin to medium body beer. With very low hops the sweet malty aroma comes across with caramel character. This malt is mild and pleasant. The finish is slower and bitter with a slight buttery flavor. Way too carbonated. An OK Vienna.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden-amber in color. Faint aroma of caramel and biscuit. Smooth caramelized flavor with toasted hay. An mild drinking Vienna. Can’t beat the price either.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear amber color with a very thin off white head. Nice sweet caramel and toasted malt aroma. Initial flavor is sweet caramel before fading to a slightly bitter finish. Well carbonated with a watery texture. The flavor dulls quite a bit after the first few sips and I even pick up a metallic taste. OK for the price though.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer is not of my favorite style, but I find that I like it pretty well. It’s medium bodied and very well balanced and eminently drinkable. I think it’s better than what folks give it credit for.
